CBS Films has released a new trailer for The Coen Brothers‘ new film, Inside Llewyn Davis. The film takes place during the 1961 Greenwich Village folk scene, and follows a week in the life of frustrated musician Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac). This is my most-anticipated film of 2013, and I love the melancholy tone of Oscar Isaac and Marcus Mumford‘s cover of “Fare Thee Well” that plays over the trailer (the song will be available on the soundtrack that comes out September 17th). The film premiered to rave reviews at Cannes earlier this year, and I can’t see this movie soon enough.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, Garrett Hedlund, and John Goodman. Inside Llewyn Davis opens December 6th. [Update: CBS Films has released a couple of new images from the film, which are now included after the jump.]

Here’s the official synopsis for Inside Llewyn Davis:
INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles—some of them of his own making.
